Invest in additional car parking in Locke Park & implement parking permits for local residents

Invest in additional space in the Locke Park car park & implement a parking permit system for surrounding areas.

Why is this important?

Over the last few years, the number of events in Locke Park has steadily increased meaning more & more people enjoy what is a wonderful community space. However, that increase in footfall hasn't seen increased investment for parking & the recent double yellow lines on one side of the road has exacerbated the problem. On top of this, the council's decision to grant business licenses to residential properties on the road & the continued use of these homes as HMOs is adding more demand for the very limited amount of space.
